Also please don't get off topic bitching about Apple's prices. This thread is about Apple Stores around the world
yeah but not worldwide like apple stores. the apple stores have often a exclusive place (5th avenue for example) you can compare that to the stores from louis vuitton, prada...

but i like the design of the apple stores

Can I contribute with an under construction Apple Store?

Apple Store Brisbane:

Here's the building. Originally built as the Brisbane office for AMP, a large Financial Corporation, it is now known as Macarthur Chambers, as it was General Macarthur's HQ while he was in Brisbane during WW2. His old offices have been restored and that floor is now a museum. The rest of the upper levels are residential. It is one of the city's most important heritage buildings.





And how the interior looked before the renovation began:



Here are the proposed plans in their entirety. While it hasn't officially been confirmed as an Apple Store, the plans give it away.

Basement Floor Plan:



Ground Floor Plan:



Mezzanine Floor Plan:



Basement Reflected Ceiling Plan:



Ground Floor Reflected Ceiling Plan:



Mezzanine Floor Reflected Ceiling Plan:



Exterior Elevations (Queen and Edward Streets):



Exterior Elevation (Inside Macarthur Central):



Interior Elevations:

Only his modern bullshit looks awesome.
This is one of Europe's 1A locations. Apple was waiting many years to get such a building.

the apple store in covent garden has around 3000m2, depending on the source. if the berlin store has 5000m2, this would mean, the berlin store is bigger than the covent garden store.

There are 5 stores around the Toronto area and not one of them is notable in any way. Disappointing.

Yes, it is taking over the old McDonald's space at the south end of the mall. Two floor space, I believe.

About the new store in Amsterdam:
"largest in the world" according to Apple CEO Tim Cook:
  • Most number of Apple products on display of any store in the chain.
  • Second-largest store in square-footage.
  • Largest volume of any store in the chain.
  • Longest Genius Bar

No better way to ruin an old building than to place an Apple logo on it. Just stick to your glass boxes, Apple.
